"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Beauty vs Beast: Lesbian Love Song

Jason Adams fromMNPPhere -- at the Tribeca Film Fest last year I weirdly reviewed two movies involving Alessandro Nivola and Orthodox Judaism.The first one is calledTo Dustand Nivola (along with his wife actress Emily Mortimer) produced it -- it starsSon of Saul's Géza Röhrig and Matthew Broderick as an extremely odd couple grappling with the afterlife.Here is my review,and you can watch the trailerover here.To Dustis finally hitting some theaters this weekend,and I highly recommend seeking it out.I really dig it.

The other movieI reviewedat Tribeca 2018 was Sebastian Lelio'sDisobedience,which came out last year and which in a just world we'd be celebrating its several Oscar nominations just about now.Hey I did my part --Disobediencegot mentions in both end-of-year polls I have a say in,The Team Experience Awardshere on this site as well asthe Dorian Awardsfor the GALECA guild of LGBT critics.But being a great film is its own reward,andDisobediencewill be remembered for a very long time as such.Now let's face off its Rachels -- McAdams is Esti,the one who stayed,and Weisz is Ronit,the one who went away...

PREVIOUSLYLast week'sCan You Ever Forgive Mepollwas as close as two friends sweeping up cat turds could be,but Melissa McCarthy got the best of Richard E Grant in the end with 53% of the vote.Said/3rtful:

"Unprepared for how emotionally affected I would be by this movie.I think the casting of McCarthy and those initial cut trailers gave no clue of the emotional wallop this movie carries."

Dorian Awards Favor 'The Favourite'

byMurtada Elfadl

The Favouritelived up to its title with GALECA's Dorian Award voters,who named the audacious historical romp Film of the Year and bestowed its star,Olivia Colman,with the Film Performance of the Year—Actress tiara for her funny and heartbreaking turn as Queen Anne.Two results that we suspect will be popular with The Film Experience community.亚博主页The movie talso scored Screenplay of the Year honors for Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara.

However for the three other acting awards for film,The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics followed the critical consensus.Ethan Hawke inFirst Reformed,Regina King inIf Beale Street Could Talkand Richard E Grant inCan You Ever Forgive Me?,added another award to their heavy mantles.Romaand Alfonso Cuaron continued their dominance of the critics awards by winning Foreign Language Film of the Year and Best Director.

GALECA's unique categories made space for films that have not been recognized widely...

by Nathaniel R

The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Journalists have announced their official nominations for 2018.It's GALECA's 10th year as an organization making this an anniversary year.As ever,full disclosure on such things,a few of our contributors here at TFE are members of this organization with encompasses over 200 journalists from the UK,US,Australia,and Canada.The all time most-awarded films by GALECA wereCarol(2015) andMoonlight(2016) so that's a good track record.The Favouriteleads the movie nomination this year whilePoseled the TV side.

Recently the Online Film Critics Society had a slate that also favoredThe Favouritebut the Yorgos Lanthimos pitch-black comedyemerged with nothing when the actual winners were selected.It kinda makes you think.CouldThe Favouritealso lead the Oscar nominations but lose everything?

After the jump the full list of nominees with quick commentary...

Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Name the "Best"Film and TV of the Year

by Nathaniel R

The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (aka GALECA) have announced their annual Dorian Award nominations.We thought we'd share the list here since a few of us at Team Experience are members.Though you might feel like I determined the nominees singlehandedly (PFEIFFER ALERT !!!) I am but one vote among many so I'm relieved that other voters chose the perpfect thing,while voting.

Perhaps it's no surprise thatCall Me By Your Nameled the nominees with 9 votes.Shape of Waterwas close behind with 7 nods.What was a surprise was 5 nominations for the still wildly underseen French dramaBPM (Beats Per Minute)already shunned by Oscar in the category it should have been frontrunning in.

I personally don't vote in every category,abstaining from the ones I feel are most problematic (does anyone actually agree on what "camp"means in 2018?) or in categories where I feel like I have not seen enough (like documentary though I lovealmostall the nominees they named this year in that category.)  The list with a few notes is after the jump...
